Appearance

The red wine Can Blau has a clean, bright, crimson color with a garnet rim.

Nose

This intense Montsant red wine carries some clean aromas of ripe black fruit, jammy fruit and liquorice, with dim remembrances of violets. On the background, some hints of vanilla and clove and notions of undergrowth and garrigue.

Palate

A creamy, meaty texture coats some succulent red fruit, with creamy and smoky nuances, mineral notes, and lively tannins that will mellow over time. This Crianza red wine from Can Blau has a good acidity and a long, intense finish.

Our personal opinion

A nice red wine, Can Blau 2017 by Cellers Can Blau pairs very well with game dishes.
